Health requirements

Health requirements

We recommend that EU residents carry a European Health Insurance Card – EHIC. These enable the holder to take advantage of the reciprocal health schemes available between members of the European Union, providing access to state-provided emergency treatment and necessary healthcare on temporary visits to the UK and other European countries.

The party leader is responsible for passing on any health requirement information to other party members. Party leaders may wish to refer to the Department of Health Leaflet T7.1 ‘Health Advice for Travellers’ which offers health advice for all destinations and can be found on the Department of Health website.

Health facilities, hygiene and disease risk vary worldwide. You should take health advice about your specific needs as early as possible. Before travelling we strongly advise you to consult your own medical practitioner who will be in the best position to take into account any relevant personal factors or newly reported epidemics. If you are prone to illness please ensure that you carry enough medication as some medicines may not be available locally.

If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability which may affect the Tour arrangements of that person, please tell us before you confirm your booking so we can advise as to the suitability of the chosen Tour. In any case, you must give us full details of any medical problems or disability in writing at the time of booking. If we feel unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person concerned, we must reserve the right to decline/cancel their reservation. We will not be liable for any loss arising from your failure to inform us about any medical problem, disability or special need which might affect your enjoyment or participation on your tour.

Please note, a number of the tours we offer, for example skiing, can be physically demanding and require a good level of fitness and health and physical ability.

We must be informed either at the time of booking, or as soon as possible thereafter, of any guest who is, or becomes, pregnant and who at the time of travelling will be post 28 weeks pregnant. After this point some carriers may refuse travel or will require a relevant medical certificate that confirms the guest has medical approval for flying.
